New Ad From AFP Features Victim of Canada’s Socialized Medicine System
Posted on | September 3, 2012
Americans for Prosperity has just released this new TV ad that will air in key swing states, slamming Obamacare:
From the AFP press release: The ad . . . is backed by a $6.2 million TV total buy in 11 key states including: Colorado, Florida, Iowa, Minnesota, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Mexico, Ohio, Virginia, Wisconsin, and North Carolina. You can watch the video here.
In a departure from previous ads which focused on failed economic promises of the President, this ad features the powerful personal testimony of an individual, Shona Holmes, a Canadian citizen, who has experienced the life-threatening restrictions of an Obamacare style government run healthcare system. Shona sought out the American Health Care system because of its patient-centered approach in sharp contrast to the Canadian system.
“The American system was there for me when I needed it,” said Shona. “It’s time for American’s to get engaged in this debate.”
“To protect America’s patient-centered care, we must replace President Obama,” said Tim Phillips, President of AFP. “Through all four of our expressed advocacy ads we are demonstrating to the American people the empty and sometimes dangerous proposition of another term of President Obama. We ask them to make Obama a One-Term President.”
